Overall Competition

An Overall competition is similar to the heptathlon in track and field. The Overall combines seven (7) disciplines — some individual and some partner events — and tests the player’s skills and abilities across the spectrum of disciplines.

The player who scores the highest combined point total for his or her final ranking in each discipline is the Overall champion.

A full-format Overall competition includes:

Double Disc Court and Freestyle are played in pairs; Freestyle can also be a co-op, or three-person, competition.

These disciplines are critical to an Overall competition because they gauge a player’s skill and ability to play cooperatively, an intrinsic element of most disc sports. The full-format Overall competition is usually staged over a week, testing an athlete’s stamina, endurance and concentration, as well as their proficiency in disc skills.
